farish noor on opposition

“[W]e need to understand that one does not simply transcend [something] by opposing it. Herein lies the irony behind the dialectics of opposition. For, more often than not, the act of opposing something leads us to re-affirm its presence and being, and we end up perpetuating the very thing we wish to eradicate by opposition.”

Farish A. Noor, 2006, “Of Rajas, Maharajas, Dewarajas and Kerajaan”
